Last week I wrote a blog for connected principals about Technology and 21st Century learning. That posted got mentioned by a friend mine Amanda Dykes in her blog http://upsidedown.edublogs.org/2011/09/06/it-is-21st-century-right/ When I read that blog it go me thinking at to what 21st Century skills are. However I have to be honest I don’t like that term since we are already a decade into the 21st Century and perhaps the better question should be what skills do we want our students to have.
Here is my short list:
a focuses on student centered learning
the ability to communicate
And while technology plays a large role in many of these areas it is a tool to help us teach the skills that we want our students to know.
I have created a Google doc and would like you to share your list.
